At a time of growing fragmentation, limited fiscal space, and greater demand for health care, the global health architecture needs more modalities that support governments to improve self-sufficiency, and unleash more resources beyond the dollar value committed by donors.

The Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents (GFF) is one step ahead in many respects and holds tremendous potential to continue making significant strides in improving RMNCAH-N outcomes worldwide. Importantly, the GFF’s country driven model promotes efficiency and effectiveness in domestic and external resource use, reduces fragmentation, duplication of efforts and maximises the impact of investments.

This research explored the successes and challenges of the GFF in shaping the health financing landscape through providing support in health financing reforms in Ethiopia as a case study. The key recommendations drawn from this research will guide future investment and programmatic decisions.
